NL Manager: Dusty Baker

The Cincinnati Reds manager was hospitalized for a stroke and an irregular heartbeat in September, but he doesn't need a sympathy vote to be considered for this award. Baker led the Reds to 97 wins (second in all of baseball), and they took the NL Central by 9 games.Thearon W. Henderson, Getty Images
